Message from Eric

As the new Office Manager for the Centre, I am sincerely delighted to come in to work each day with the dual role of enhancing activity & food options for the good folks all along the Sunshine Coast as well as building strong connections with our dedicated volunteers & esteemed Board of Directors.

As we continue to evolve through this post-COVID world, our older population has had to endure a myriad of difficulties—much born out of isolation—and resulting in many with compromised physical & mental states of being. It’s time to change that!

So if you are looking to step-change your life for the better, I invite you to check out our website and come by the Centre to explore our wide range of activities & volunteer opportunities. This really is an inspiring group to work with; being around good-hearted, likeminded folks who care about themselves and others in their community.

So help us help you get back to living the kind of life you want to live because we truly are. . . stronger together.
